This property was fantastic in terms of location and served our needs perfectly! The neighborhood is great! Central Park is two blocks away and from there you can access the museums (i.e. Museum of Natural History, Guggenheim, The Met, etc.) There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. A liquor store is located one block away as well as neighborhood store which sells your typical household necessities as well as produce.
Shamai was very helpful in giving us the lay of the land in terms of the neighborhood and where the nearby subway stations were.
This is a better alternative to overpriced Manhattan hotels and I would definitely stay here again!
